Deadly U.S. Drone Strike in Kabul Kills 9 Civilians, Including 6 Children

The United States of America conducted a drone strike in Kabul, Afghanistan at a residential area allegedly targeting a vehicle that carried “multiple suicide bombers” associated with the Islamic State of Khorasan Province (ISKP). However, according to reports since then, at least 9 civilians have been killed in the drone strike, including 6 children. A relative of the deceased told a local journalist working with CNN that 9 civilians were killed from one single family. At the time of writing this report, the Associated Press had reported that a local Afghan official had said that three children had died. There is some confusion about the precise number yet but it could be that the death toll was rising and hence, the different numbers.
